Pavl Rycl

I have just posted 63 images of gymnasts at work in training and warm-up on the GYMNASTS GALLERY #1 page. All come from the extraordinary work of sports photographer Pavl Rycl, whose own site at is well worth a visit. It covers many sports in addition to gymnastics. We are pleased to know him, having met him in competitions in Linz (Austria) and Brno (Czech Republic). Here’s an example of what you will find on the other page:

There are may more gymnastics images throughout this site – other pages and also in blog posts. Go explore. Index at top of page.

Separately, here are some examples of Pavl’s studio work. Mostly wrestlers from the Czech Republic I think: clearly sportsmen in strict training regimes. Good for them!


About tonycavanagh

Born Northampton UK; school Oxford UK and Oak Ridge Tennessee, where I met my wonderful partner Dave, also from UK. Oak Ridge is our main training base for acrobatics and circus stuff, but we also established a base in Wales (UK) to serve us when we are working in Europe. Our 'story', of finding gay love, learning the acrobatics trade and then of how we got shot at during our show (and worse was to follow - just to prove that the risks of being an acrobat are not always the most obvious ones!) are now available in my three books 'Loving the Boy', 'The Power of Love' and 'Against All Odds'. Links available on most blog posts. Actually, waiting for the imminent arrival of the first printed copies was far scarier than anything we do in performance. A fourth book - not about us but exploring the sadness of a gay Native American boy denied his true identity - is currently with an agent for evaluation. watch for 'Let The Future Find Me' in due time. And now to book five... another boy, another quest... seems its always boys...

  1. These guys are awesome. I had no idea the workout for gymnasts is so grueling. I’ll also say I’d blow most of them as long as they’re at least eighteen.
